Dont panic, just take batteries out, turn camera off take your lens off pull your card out then put back in put batteries back in put lens back on and you should be alright. If not call Nikon.
Hi, the problem your having is going to be the lense the only thing to try is removing the battery and any mem card thats in it then hold the camera in one hand and then hit it into the palm of your other hand so as to shock the camera doing this should remove anything thats jamming the lense and stopping it from workinf. Failing this their isnt much you can do as this means the lense motor no longer works. This is a common problem usually due to the fact the pressure has been put on the lense forcing it past the point where it is.
Even if the camera has been switched on and your hand is touching the lense this can be enough to cause the problem your having.
Get back to me after you try shocking the camere doing this should remove anything thats become jammed.
The other thing to try is when you switch it on try pulling the lense out a bit as it would normally make sure camera is in picture mode then try this as this can sometimes free the lense also ok get back to me ok

Frozen Camera I have a Panasonic Lumix TZ3 digital camera. The last time it worked, the screen went checkered, so i turned it off. But upon turning it off, the lens of the camera stayed out like it was taking a picture. Now it won't turn on.
